Sometimes I feel like I don’t even want to be married until I’m 35+. Is this a bad thing, would I be waiting too long? (F)

Yes, if you want to have multiple children it could get a little tricky, but not impossible. How old are you now? You may change your mind the closer you get.

I think the biggest concern for me as a woman is my biological clock. Not saying that you can’t naturally conceive when you’re 35+, but it could be more difficult. It also doesn’t help that when you do become pregnant at 35+, it’s deemed to be a geriatric pregnancy and with more risks.

My friends and I are in the late 20s/early 30s stage and we find ourselves having more convos about freezing our eggs. That process also has its own risks and not to mention the financial costs.

Stop adding stress by assigning ages to life events. Be open and enjoy where you are. You will grow and change.

I think so many people need to hear this!

Not a bad thing, especially if you don’t want kids there’s no rush. Even if you want kids, many people have them without getting married and manage successful relationships.

I assume you don't want children OP

I very much do!

I felt the same way… and then met my now-husband at 22 and was married by 24.

But seriously, I try to take life as it comes, and know that when I plan, sometimes the universe laughs.

Have you ever not attended a wedding because you disagree with the couple's life choices/direction? Good friends of ours are getting married in a few weeks and my husband doesn't want to attend. We've been friends w them for almost 10 years, but have drifted recently bc they are still partying way harder than us. We all met in nightlife, but my husband and I are basically sober at this point, while they still drink and do hard drugs every weekend.

Nonetheless, I still think they're good people

My friends think I’m crazy because I’m willing to work all the time / give 110%, but they don’t understand that I need to do well so I can better provide for my family. I’m already making more in a week at 22 years old than my mom makes in a month, and she works way harder than I do. Just wanted to get this off my chest ha. I’m not resentful and I definitely understand the need for self care…but I’m willing to suffer in a high-paying job if it means I can provide for my family. Is this just me?🙂

I live in Fremont. I really love going for concert/sports event, which usually happens in SF. But every time I need to spend a lot of time trying to convince my hubby to go with me, because he hates the traffic between Fremont and SF especially on event day. And he wouldn't really agree to let me go alone, because he worries about my safety at night.

Any solutions, except for moving to SF..? I'm new in the bay.
